Connectors Handle Power In Small Form Factor

A new smaller and lighter power connector has been designed to provide safe and dependable power interconnects in portable equipment of any type, especially in demanding applications. The Neptune connector is suited for oil exploration equipment, both on land or offshore; modular power generation equipment; modular manufacturing plants; and convention center power distribution. The Neptune line includes plugs and receptacles from 30A to 400A at 600V and features the company’s Radsok contact system, which allows for more amperage and voltage through a smaller connector. Its lightweight, rugged aluminum hardware is precision machined from high-tensile-strength bar stock and finished with a hard coating to 40 points on the Rockwell C scale. Conductors are readily terminated to easily accessible pressure wire terminals. Armored and sheathed cable built to IEEE-45/UL 1309, IEC, BS, DIN and JIC standards are compatible with the Neptune connector, as are unarmored cables and flexible cables, including S, SO, SOOW-A, W, and G-GC type cables. Pricing for a mated pair starts at $100 each. AMPHENOL CORP., Sidney, NY. (800) 678-0141
